    If you're looking for a multiplayer shooter that offers more than twitch-based gameplay and is not strictly focused on kills, then you should definitely give Battlefield V a try.

    Battlefield V achieves a full immersion within the WWII phenomenon due to a magnificent storyline and some excellent general details. The multiplayer meets all of the expectations and in the end the franchise manages to stay as a reference in the FPS genre.

    Battlefield V is not a big audiovisual step up from Battlefield 1, nor does it have a great campaign or important new game modes. But in return it brings us the best multiplayer in the series in playable terms and the promise of Tides of War: the free and regular updates of the game with new content and features.

    If DICE is telling the truth and Battlefield V develops into a long-term, always evolving online game, fans are in for a treat. The bones of BFV are robust. It looks outstanding, plays great, and the stories of World War 2 are a constant draw for history fans. There are rough patches for the time being, but if those get smoothed out and the content pipeline remains full, Battlefield V stands to have a very, very long shelf life with shooter fans.

    Fans of the Battlefield franchise will find that despite its flaws, Battlefield V warrants a return trip to World War II. If we look at raw numbers, there's less content than before, but the quality of the maps remains the same, and free DLC is on the way. Some old modes, like Frontlines, feel like a slog, while new modes like Grand Operations feel quite quick despite having longer intended play times. The game looks gorgeous, but it still has some graphical issues that need to be ironed out. Despite all of this and a number of bugs that are already being addressed by DICE, BF5 still manages to retain all of the traits and quirks that make the Battlefield series feel exhilarating.
  6. It might lack the spit and polish seen in some other shooters, but Battlefield V delivers a visceral thrill unique to the series. Its adrenaline-filled, large-scale battles give rise to memorable moments simply not seen in other games, and these moments are augmented by the faithful Second World War setting. Those looking for an alternative to the twitch-driven combat of other popular shooters will find it here.

    As it stands now, Battlefield V is a beautiful depiction of an ugly war that offers only a few fleeting chances to reflect on what it meant...And then the bullets start flying.

The system of lack of ammunition and first aid kits is very cool! I don't understand the idiots who say the game is bad because there are women or black people in it, because they really were in world War II. The gameplay of the game is a masterpiece, and I calmly put her 10 out of 10! Hopefully, the developers will fix some technical problems, and then it will definitely be the best part of the series!

    I understand and appreciate some of the criticism some gamers have posted about Battlefield V. However I like Battlefield V and find it to beI understand and appreciate some of the criticism some gamers have posted about Battlefield V. However I like Battlefield V and find it to be refreshing once again where team play is stressed over individual accomplishments.

    Too many multiplayer games are devoid of working as a team. The Battlefield series still puts the the focus on working as a team to accomplish objectives.

    As for the era, which seems to be the biggest hang-up some gamers have, if you want futuristic combat then play Halo or some other game that features those elements you feel Battlefield V is lacking. It appears to me that Battlefield did a reset with Battlefield I taking you to WW1, now we are in WW2 and I would image the next installment will be either the Korean War or the Vietnam War.

    I like the fact that they have seemed to remedy much of the crappy (for lack of a better term) "quick scoping" and jumping 10 feet in the air to avoid being shot. If that is what you enjoy play CoD. I am amazed at how many gamers decry "the game isn't realistic" but then run around with a sniper rifle quick-scoping everyone. Seriously, you believe that is realistic?

    The graphics, sound quality and overall gameplay are excellent. The environments can feel a bit static and but there are many options for cover and alternate paths to objectives. In reading tips on the game is quite apparent that some of the settings, such as controller sensitivity, should be tweaked to your preference as they are set fairly low and slow to begin with.

    The ability to build fortifications, medical/ammo stations and other new features are nice additions to the game.

    In summary if you are looking for a solid team shooter this is a good choice. If you are looking for quick-scoping, jump over bullets, run on walls game then you probably should look elsewhere. Overall this game is a quality shooter that detract many players with the aforementioned gaming habits.
